You can also use beets, purple cabbage, red or yellow onion skins, and even coffee grounds to dye eggs. Also try dyeing both white and brown eggs to get different shades. Brown eggs give a darker, more saturated look and sometimes turn out an entirely different color! Purple cabbage, for example, makes white eggs blue and brown eggs green and beets turn white eggs pink and brown eggs a nice deep burgundy.
